The Long and Short Stitch Embroidery book has a nice collection of flowers to embroider in the needle painting technique. The book does not have diagrams on how to stitch each petal and leaf of the flowers like you will get when you purchase one of my needle painting kits but it is a good book if you have worked a few of my designs and are now familiar with the technique and would like some more flower designs to stitch.
